Wenn getanzt wird will ich führen
(Where there's dancing, I want to lead)
Auch wenn ihr euch alleine dreht
(Even if you turn [dance] alone,)
Lasst euch ein wenig kontrollieren
(Let yourself be controlled a little)
Ich zeige euch wie's richtig geht
(I show you how it's done right)

Wir bilden einen lieben Reigen
(We're lining up nicely)
Die Freiheit spielt auf allen Geigen
(Freedom plays on all violins)
Musik kommt aus dem Weißen Haus
(Music comes from the White House)
Und vor Paris steht Mickey Maus
(And before Paris stands Mickey Maus)
(We're all living in Amerika)

We're all living in Amerika
(America)
Amerika ist wunderbar
(America is wonderful)
We're all living in Amerika
(America)
Amerika
(America)
Amerika
(America)

Ich kenne Schritte die sehr nützen
(I know very useful steps)
Und werde euch vor Fehltritt schützen
(And will protect you from mishap)
Und wer nicht tanzen will am Schluss
(And who don't want to dance at the end)
Weiß noch nicht dass er tanzen muss
(Don't know yet that he's [they] got to dance!)

Wir bilden einen lieben Reigen
(We're lining up nicely)
Ich werde euch die Richtung zeigen
(I will show you the direction)
Nach Afrika kommt Santa Claus
(Santa Clause is coming to Africa)
Und vor Paris steht Mickey Maus
(And Mickey Mouse is on the outskirts of Paris)

We're all living in Amerika

This is not a love song
This is not a love song
---> I don't sing my (mother's) tongue
No, this is not a love song

We're all living in Amerika

We're all living in Amerika

For god sake! | Reviewer: R | 11/27/13

For all you Americans on here stating how they are not fond of the Anti-American sentiment and wanting thanks for preventing Germany speaking Russian.

How many of you muppets refer to Germans as "Nazis" still? How many hold some sort of grudge for WW2 (which i suspect strongly that none of you where alive for and probably neither where your parents!).

The world does not owe you thanks for acting like you do invading any country who wont adopt american ways (or has oil). Its no wonder the world (its that large place outside of your coastline) laughs at you.

oh well | Reviewer: jon | 10/17/13

This song isn't bad.. But just once id like to see someone appreciate what we did for them.. If it wasn't for us they would be speaking Russian come to think of it if Russia had their way there wouldn't be a Germany but oh well I guess some people can't be pleased.. But hey who reads history anymore right.. Oh and to the comment at the top everyone all over the world had slaves it actually became a huge thing after Europeans found out how much money could be made Long before America came about.. But last and not least we have problems and we know them very well but all the other countries think we aren't great but spend alot of time being resentful towards us.. But we are a great planet with a bright future all of us combined.. But just remember this when ever a country is in need who you gonna call U.S.A.

More Leftist Propaganda | Reviewer: Rob | 11/3/12

I like Rammstein's music but don't appreciate the anti-American sentiment. But hey, they are European and that is typical European jealousy and ill-informed resentment. What bothers me more is the anti-American sentiment coming from the American leftist scum in these comments trashing their own country and culture. That is the saddest thing, and that is what will destroy the west before anything else. But hey, I guess these days the leftists think the Muslim way of life is better? Or perhaps the way of life that any other country leads that has less that the west. Best of luck. How's that Liberal vote working for ya? Has it destroyed enough of your culture yet?

good song | Reviewer: katelyn GERMANY! | 7/27/12

Ok this song Is good and we cannot blame them if I was German and just seen all of the stupid crap America does I would hate it too rammstein is an amazing band and Germany is a good country yea they have a history but so do we we used to have slaves for crying out loud were not any better but anyway they are a really good band and metal sounds really awesome in German

Who cares? | Reviewer: Jen | 6/16/12

They're a German band, they are going to have their own opinion of America...Instead of getting butt hurt because they're "slandering" our country, look at the lyrics! "I don't sing my mother tongue" were taking over other country and cultures and trying to make them eat sleep and breathe america, and they're pissed off about it, and they would have every right to make this song...its a very good song at that...if Germany, or some other country was doing what ours does I'm sure wed be pissed off too...our bands right songs about other countrys too ITS MUSIC just shut up and enjoy it or don't listen to it...its that simple

It matters. | Reviewer: WNationalist | 5/31/12

Shit song if you're American, I know all you RammsteinBots say "it doesn't matter if they're secretly slandering America!" but frankly it's sad that we're at a point in history where an American doesn't GAF about a song slandering his country.

Guys | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/13/12

Kinda sad how we get in arguments over one song. We all live in the same world, and we all play an important part in it. We often don't agree on things and we share different views about how things should work--but jeez, look at the fact:

We live in the same world. Have some respect for everyone.

rammstein rules | Reviewer: victor sotomayor | 1/12/12

i think "america" is a pretty good song, and i think metal sounds prety much better in german cause is an stronger languaje, you knoy i'm from peru (were tha hell??) and yes i guess american media culture has washed my brain so what
if is a really cool culture, you know is better that "rosita de espinar" (who tha fuck????) check it out (rosita) and you will know what i'm talking about, see you

Amerika | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/24/11

The "American way of life" is like a virus spreading around the world, with our huge mega corporations buying out the worlds cultures.

From the U.S. to the world.
~Our children waiting to be brainwashed by the media.

just listen | Reviewer: crazybrit | 11/21/11

Man all you guys n gals need to shut the fuck up and just enjoy the music yes there might be hidden meanings and yes they might be slandering america and yes ofc some of the stuff you guys are saying is true but what your all forgetting so it would seem is that its a song for entertainment purposes not a nation wide rally against america jesus christ so just quit flaming the music and listen

get it over | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/19/11

good translation! but dunno guys why are u breaking ur heads! get it over its just a song, we all know the U.S. (America???) its not very well looked, Envy? Hatred? who knows... U.S. has done well messing in another nations' bussiness and taking advantage of lower developed coutries, you guys should have accepted that already, if there weren't for the French there won't be United States at all, and is this shit of calling ur country after a continent "America" that sicks me out, u may helped in WW2 but French did they part on getting back their land, and the English holding on the nazis massive bombing, and the Russians striking on Hittler's Nazi armies and sezing Berlin, be honest to urself u only came to pick up the last piece of cake, plus u were so COWARD to use the hydrogen bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, proud of bein' "American"? meh! give me a break!!! read some history and realize the TRUTH

@ sdc39 | Reviewer: anti-dawah | 4/6/11

No, you need to learn *your* history. How do you think Islam spread initially numb nuts? It spread through violence and subjugation of minorities.

Furthermore, it's you who needs to do some reading. There's a little thing in Islam known as dawah which is proselytising. So, how is converting people against Islamic belief?

To leave Islam (apostasy) is against muslim belief and is punishable by death according to all schools of Islam.

100% Right :P | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/17/11

@sdc39 You obviously have not went to school or done any research either, so do not talk, and No America is not asked to join wars, they butt in, the wars America is invited to America rejects. for the most part.
@anonymous You're right on some parts but not completely. Every Rammstein song has a double meaning, of which I do not know either meaning. :P

god stop complaining | Reviewer: sdc39 | 3/2/11

first off @ realamerican actually the russians lost more troops than we did durring ww2 and there was the war of 1812 that happened here too. oh and how did we not start the war in iraq right now they had nothing to do with anything here and we still went in even though no one asked for or help. 2nd @ anonymous learn your history muslims dont convert people its against there beliefs. it seems like none of you went to school or somehing. america has faught in alot of wars we didnt start most of them and were asked to join its not our fault we are the only major super power left, well us and china but we dont talk about them. the song sounds more like its about how america has changed places. alot of countries have lost alot of their culture because of us thats not our fault obviously people in your history thought hmmm maybe those guys have a good idea because theyre the ones who changed it no one put a gun to there head

great song, worrying messege | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/12/11

i love this song, as i love most rammstein songs, but it has a worrying messege! it is talking about the americanisation of the world, and how that is a bad thing (because over time it can damage other countries traditions, just like muslim immigration can damage our traditions like when the england flag got banned in bolton because someone was offended). the whole world being 'americanised' is a bad thing i suppose, it loses traditions, but this applies to many things, 'westernisation', idk if this is a word but 'muslimisation' etc etc, this is a fine messege, however its kinda stupid how its all directed at america and i think many people misinterpret the song believe the 'this is not a love song' part means they hate america, and therefore influencing others to have a hatred for america. its not saying america is a bad thing, its saying american traditions taking over is a bad thing, but people will think it means america is a bad thing, which is stupid and ANNOYS ME :@
